Billie Eilish shared an interview with the Vevo on 21st July where she talks about her latest album ‘Happier Than Ever’.
The reason behind making this album was evident as the artist started with, “I wanted to make a very timeless record that wasn’t just timeless how people thought but really timeless for myself”.
Billie said that she tried to bring back the reminiscence of the artists she is greatly inspired by like, Julie London and Frank Sinatra. She has grown up listening to them and considers the songs to be most versatile.
She said, “which is like a big goal for me, is to make things feel like the same project but not like the same song over and over again”.
She further added, “I want people to hear what I say ‘ Oh God! I Feel Like That. I didn’t know I feel like that but this is how I feel’ and make a change in their life that makes them happier”. No wonder why her fans take pride in her kindness.
But then Billie said that she doesn’t want to be too specific because it is really up to the listeners and how they relate to it. She said, “I don’t want to put ideas into their brains because I want them to feel”.
She wants to make sure that listeners find their “own interpretation is the right interpretation”.
Further talking about the album, the artist said that it shares an ample amount of her self-reflection in each of the tracks.
She said ‘the process was natural and it felt really good and satisfying”. She also expressed their anxiety that previously she would only think “I’m not doing the right job” under pressure.
She said, “I felt I wasn’t enough talented”. From there to here, she is proud of her journey feels quite confident about her craft.
Choosing the singles is quite easy now as she follows her impulse rather than deciding what’s big.
She said, “I’m always wrong. Everything that I think people would like they don’t and everything I think they won’t like, they do. So I have no idea how it works”.
She further said “I don’t know why people like things they don’t” which hit the fans hard.”
In the end, the artist also talks about her synaesthesia, the senses that associate with the other impression, colors, and stimulation.
She said, “To me your power is like the Tan Brown color” and the album also signifies that. Billie as an artist and through her personal life has grown much and the latest album touches every corner of maturity and self-realization. The interview is also arranged in a tan brown aesthetic setting.
She recommended listeners to enjoy the album in the rain inside the car or however they feel like since it is all about them.
